The Maloof High ollie challenge finals started with these guys

After both Aldrin and Chris cleared the 42-inch mark, a decision was made to raise the bar right up to 45 inches in an attempt to break the previous record of 44.5 set by Danny Wainwright.  If neither cleared the 45-inch mark, the bar would be lowered back to 43 inches.  Here's Brian Schaeffer measuring it—look how tall it is compared to Paul Rodriguez and Kurtis Colamonico. Joey Brezinski is mighty impressed

The hits keep coming inside: Matt Bennett, Jake Donnelly and Wes Kremer get grilled; Element traverses Taiwain; Vol 4 hits the road (and the spliffs) for SXSW; a 16-page photo feature blows some stoke in your eyes; EMB OG James Kelch talks Classic Graphics and Cory Kennedy talks some shit. Yeah, that'll do it. Add this one to your collection.
